GOOD HOPE — Good Hope quarterback Bailey Quick led his team to a 43-24 win over Cordova Friday night, making up for mistakes with multiple touchdowns.

For the Blue Devils, finding the end zone prior to this game had been impossible. Cordova did not manage to put up a single point on the scoreboard in their first two games, but that drought ended Friday night when Justin Wallace charged through the line of scrimmage to an electrifying 76-yard touchdown late in the second quarter.

Unfortunately for Cordova, they could not stop Quick from scoring three touchdowns of his own, one on a 30-yard rush and two passes through the air to receiver Zachary Bagwell and running back Matthew Dixon. Though Quick completed only 6 of 16 attempts, he made the completions count and amassed 107 yards passing as well as 124 yards rushing.

Dixon and Colton Bagwell also managed to notch their own rushing touchdowns amidst the scoring frenzy.

Aiden Gay managed to break a 10-yard run for a touchdown for the Blue Devils as time expired in the third quarter before catching a 9-yard pass from quarterback Kason Smith for another score soon afterwards. Receiver Jordan Perrin delivered on two separate two-point-conversion attempts, catching passes on both from Smith.

Smith struggled early in the game and threw two interceptions before collecting himself and finishing 8 of 19 with 76 passing-yards.

On the defensive side, Wallace and Jayvon Bridges both racked up five tackles each. Dawson Pate followed closely behind with four tackles of his own.

Cordova head coach Jimmy Gay commented on the team’s determination, saying, “I don’t think we could have played any better. We just have to grow up a little bit. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and find ways to make plays. We have to give ourselves chances to win.”

Cordova will be pursuing their first victory when they return home to take on Fayette County High School next Friday.
